It stands some 40 to 50 feet above the Lochs, overlooking the remark- able assemblage of prehistoric structures crowded together in this area. In outward appearance it is a great, green, cone-shaped mound some 24 feet high and 115 feet in diameter at the base, differing only in size and symmetry from some other chambered mounds in Orkney. There is, however, good reason to believe that, were its sur- face stripped of soil and turf, there would be revealed a dry-stone building constructed with care and great skill. It is surrounded, at a distance of from 50 to 70 feet from its base, by a broad ditch, averaging 45 feet in width and 6 feet in greatest depth. It has been calculated that the upcast from this ditch would have been sufficient to furnish a covering of earth for the stone structure it encloses, but it is possible that the building was originally left exposed and that nature has pro- vided the covering. The crumb- GW-J ling of the stonework under the influence of the weather would soon fill the crevices with soil in which the seeds of grasses would by and by sow themselves, and a mantle of turf would thus eventually be formed. The entrance to the interior is on the south-western side of the mound and opens into a passage, now 36 feet 6 inches in length, restored at the outer end, but everywhere else original. At a distance inwards of 6 feet 6 inches there are door-checks on either side, and within these a downward step of 7! inches. At this point the passage has a height of 4 feet 6 inches and a width of 3 feet. Inwards from the step the floor slopes imperceptibly upwards, the total rise being less than a foot in the whole length. For a distance of 8 feet from the door- checks, the lower parts of which are built with upright jambs, the sides of the passage are con- structed of irregularly coursed masonry, but thereafter the walls and the roof are formed of single slabs averaging 18 feet 6 inches long, 4 feet 4 inches wide, and 7 inches thick, the effect being that of a great rectangular box. In all probability the floor was also a monolith, but owing to fractures it is impossible to be certain of this.
